You might find something interesting browsing through the Prelinger Archives.

One of my favorites is an "instructional" film warning young boys of the evils of homosexuality:

I've browsed Prelinger man times, usually looking for Cold War scare classics, Like "Duck & Cover". I've already added he few that I could find in there and across IA. Like I said (and probably said poorly), my search-fu hasn't been that great, but at the same time, exploitation films as a genre is so broad, I really don't know most of it. Hence the appeal for people so shoot me links to their favorites.

Either way, THANK YOU!!! I had no idea "Boys Beware" was even posted here! I've heard of it, but never seen it; so I'm snagging it as I write this. I hope it's ever bit as good as "The Flaming Urge" (which I just watched and reviewed, last night).

Here's a counterpoint:

Another Sid Davis "classic."

If you haven't already, use his name asa search term. Lots of his work is here, although I'm not sure that it all qualifies as "exploitation."

Test Tube Babies has a Mill Creek Entertainment Logo that pops up once and a while.

Should it be removed, or should I keep quiet?

There are several movies here where I've seen logos. For that reason I don't think it matters much. Maybe someone (Moongleam?) can process them out and repost it sometime.

e.g. - I watched "The Hitch-Hiker", last night, and noticed that at the very end of the file is the Kino International logo thing.
